Development of bitumen emulsion production

A new age in road construction began on 9 May 1922. Hugh Alan McKey registered the first bitumen emulsion patent. Within several years the application of this new material significantly changed road construction. The amount of bitumen emulsions made in France in 1923 was several hundred tons. In 1924 it increased to 2500, and toRead More

Emulsion Test Methods. Do We Need Them?

Asphalt emulsions have been in existence for almost 100 years in the United States and the rest of the world. They were first developed in the early 1900s, used in road applications in the 1920s, with continued growth due to World War II and the energy crisis of the 1970s. Asphalt emulsions have found theirRead More

Specifics of bitumen emulsion modification

Water-bitumen emulsion is a highly dispersed dark brown material made by atomization of bitumen in water solution of an emulsifier. Such methods of bitumen thinning as organic solutions and hot mastics are prohibited in several European countries due to environmental and health hazards. A better and more efficient method is emulsification. The process is becomingRead More

Bitumen emulsion reduces dust from dirt roads

Pit roads, crossings and driveways are by nature very dusty. In the general case, the amount of dust kicked up into the air depends on the surface of the road, its condition, weight and speed of vehicle movement. A large amount of dust in the air causes accelerated engine wear, limits visibility and causes seriousRead More

bitumen emulsion breaking

Bitumen Emulsion Breaking

The function of bitumen emulsion is to form uninterrupted film of bitumen after breaking. The rate of this process depends on the reactive ability of the emulsion and the stone surface, as well as weather conditions, such as temperature and humidity. Bitumen emulsion are classified according to their reactive ability. Fast breaking emulsion separate immediatelyRead More

Ground Stabilization by Bitumen Emulsions

Motorways are the main means of ground transportation. Damp weather complicates traffic on dirt roads, limiting their throughput. Regular technology of ground stabilization with bitumen emulsions is performed at optimal humidity. In this case, part of the water from the emulsion is absorbed by the ground, which makes for uneven distribution of bitumen in theRead More

Improving Bitumen with Polymer Additives

Petroleum bitumen is widely used in construction. It includes materials for  roofing, waterproofing, air tight material, piping protection (and other types of anti-corrosion and even radiation production), materials for road top, surfacing of canals, settling ponds, sludge collectors etc. Despite the growing production of bitumen, it is still in short supply. Some of the supplyRead More

Classification of Bitumen Emulsions

The two major groups are water-in-oil and oil-in-water emulsions. Besides, bitumen emulsion are classified according to the rate of separation: fast, medium and slow breakdown emulsions. The first groups includes emulsions which separate soon after contacting the mineral material. The smaller the particles of the mineral material, the faster the breakdown. Medium breakdown emulsions separateRead More

Bitumen Emulsion Applications

The use of bitumen emulsion has several benefits compared to regular bitumen binding materials: the viscosity of bitumen emulsions at room temperature is several times less than that of straight bitumen, facilitating easy permeation even small pores of the treated surface; emulsion higher adhesion to various surfaces, making it possible to create stronger road layers;Read More

The Necessity of Bitumen Modification

Oil-based road construction bitumen is the main binding substance used in construction and repair of roads; it is elastic, can withstand low temperatures and temperature deviations without breaking, and resists deformations. However, specific operation of high load objects such as bridges, overpasses etc require higher quality of asphalt pavements. Normal bitumen cannot entirely meet theseRead More

Dehydration of Fuel

In reality, diesel fuel almost always contains water and other impurities. Since regular filters cannot capture water, and separator filters don’t always work as advertised, water contamination remains the biggest concern. The lifetime of a fuel system in a vehicle depends on the quality of the diesel fuel (mostly its purity). When the tank isRead More

Emulsification in the Process of Bitumen Emulsion Production

In the process of emulsification, bitumen is dispersed into microscopic particles, while internal cohesion and viscosity of bitumen, as well as interfacial tension resist the formation of new phase boundary surface. Bitumen particles tend to coalesce. To make a stable emulsion, it is necessary not only to apply mechanical forces correctly to make small enoughRead More
